Q100548: Important Announcement - Compatibility of Foundry products with Apple macOS Catalina (10.15)


Apple's forthcoming OS update macOS Catalina (10.15) will have stricter requirements which will affect the compatibility of Foundry products with the latest version of macOS.



Apple has announced stricter signing requirements for all applications running on the new version of macOS which is expected to be released later this month.

As upgrading to macOS Catalina (10.15) will prevent you from opening older versions of the product, we recommend that users remain on the currently supported version of macOS.  

Modo 13.2v1 onwards and Colorway 3.1v1 onwards support macOS Catalina (10.15) 

Nuke Family 12.1v1 onwards supports macOS Catalina (10.15)

Mari 4.6v3 onwards supports macOS Catalina (10.15)

Flix does not support macOS Catalina (10.15)

*Apple has also removed support for 32-bit applications, including QuickTime Helper, which Nuke relies on to support several QuickTime codecs. As a result, these codecs will not be supported when using Nuke 12.1 on macOS Catalina.

Please rest assured that we are taking steps to meet the new requirements and will address the incompatibility in future releases of our products.  We will update this article with more information when it becomes available.  You can subscribe to updates by clicking on the "Follow" button above.
